Review for The Menil Collection, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We love the fact that the Menil exhibitions are open to all -- never an admission fee. For those who choose to invest in a membership, the museum offers additional access to rich experiences such as home collection tours and curator-led tours of shows. It is incredibly fulfilling to be invested in a place like the Menil that is so meaningful to our family and our city.

Review for The Menil Collection, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Menil was a primary reason why I was excited to move to Houston in 2010 and it continues to be the jewel of this city that I would most miss if I ever were to move away. I appreciate the accessibility of the museum--small enough to explore in a couple hours, always free and tucked right in the heart of the Montrose neighborhood. In addition to the unparalleled surrealist collection and provocative contemporary works, the Menil offers fascinating programming--obscure music and dance performances, rare artist talks. Some of my favorite talks have been those by Richard Serra, Brice Marden and Luc Tuymans.

Review for The Menil Collection, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When people ask me why I love Houston, the Menil is the first reason that comes to mind. The museum has been a bedrock in my and my family's life in this city since we moved here in 2010. It is a rare thing to have this quality of art nestled in the middle of a neighborhood like Montrose. The museum itself is a calming space--despite the often challenging, provocative art--that immediately elevates you above whatever you were dealing with before you walked in the doors. It is a space open to anyone, always free, not pretentious but instead committed to making the highest forms of art accessible to any person who cares to engage.
